The second in the Twilight Sessions series. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound, but with a dub edge. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay. These loops can be quite long, so as a performer I can add notes as I see fit, but only have a...

A celebration of ten years of wonderful music from one of London's most original producers.

Total running time: 12:59 Entheogen is the music of Goran Pejović, a new producer from Montenegro.

After the success, earlier this year, of his mini-album, 'Eleven', comes the fantastic new release from one of London's most original and interesting producers. Ketsa - 'The X Inside' is a great album. You can hear Ketsa's influences in there but the intricate beats, the ambience, the worldiness and whole warm feeling of these recordings is hard to define. This is a smart album and your ears want you to download it.

The second release on BFW from Vladislav Buben is nothing short of wonderful. The hypnotic drones that appear on 'Emblem' are there, but now coupled with fantastic world beats and deep bass lines. In his own words: When winter goes away and spring comes along, on a dark evening, when the sky is ink-blue and the lemon-looking moon shines upon the landscape, the last snow - the final winter trace - starts falling. It covers the ground with a white blanket and the local cat strolling across the...

Rooted in the beginnings of ambient, it draws comparison to Fripp and Eno's collaborations. But this is the work of one man, Jonathan Ewald. The music is recorded in one live take and completely improvised. Improvised and recorded in a single take on April 24th, 2010 at Worthless Research Laboratories in Madison, WI. jonathan ewald - 6 string bass; electric guitar; percussion; AM...

Original cover photograph by Fiona Burgin The seventh compilation from BFW recordings, featuring music from current and future BFW releases, from December 2010 to March 2011. This is probably the most ambient compilation we have released so far, although there are elements of indie guitar noise and glitchy electronics thrown in there for good measure. All in all, a great album showcasing the wide range of music we release - all available to download for free from BFW recordings.
